How many years does it take to complete the program? The agreement between Meredith College and North Carolina State University, College of Engineering establishes a plan whereby an undergraduate student will attend Meredith College for approximately three years and then attend North Carolina State University's College of Engineering for approximately two years.
How many degrees will I earn? After successfull completion of the admission, transfer, and academic requirements of both institutions, as summarized below, the student will be awarded a Bachelor of Arts degree in either Chemsitry or Mathematics from Meredith College and a Bachelor of Science degree in one of the available corresponding engineering specialties from NCSU.
Bachelor of Arts Degree from Meredith College:
Bachelor of Science Degree from North Carolina State University:
Chemical or Environmental
Civil, Computer, Electric, or Industrial Engineering
When do I have to make the decision to enroll in the Engineering Dual Degree program? Students are encouraged to enroll in this program during summer registration before the first semester of their freshman year; they should declare their major during their first semester at Meredith and meet with the Engineering Progarm Coordinator at Meredith.
What are the Meredith admission requirements? Any student who meets the general admission requirements of Meredith College is eligible to participate in this program. However, preferences will be given to students with a strong background in mathematics and science.
I am a transfer student, can I still pursue the Engineering Dual Degree program? Students can transfer from other colleges and universities into this program at Meredith College and receive credit for the equivalent courses common to MC and NCSU curriculum. The equivalencies will be determined and communicated to the student by the Engineering Program Coordinator at MC and the Coordinator of Transfers at NCSU College of Engineering.
How many credit hours do I have to take at Meredith College? Participants in this program must take (including courses in which the student is currently enrolled) a minimum of 90 semester hours at MC (and, transferred to MC from other institutions, including NCSU) before applying for transfer admission to NCSU. Note that the student must take 48 of the last 60 hours (45 of the last 60 hours for Chemical Engineering) of the engineering major at NCSU.
Does NCSU accept Meredith College credits? When a dual degree student is admitted to NCSU, her transcript from MC will be evaluated and appropriate credit will be given towards the NCSU degree requirements. The Engineering Program Coordinator at MC and the Coordinator of Transfers will remain in communication with one another regarding the evaluation of transfer courses.
What do I have to do to make sure my Meredith College credits transfer to NCSU? In order to maximize transfer credit, the student must consult the Engineering Program Coordinator at MC on a regular basis to determine which courses are applicable to their intended NCSU engineering degree.
What do I have to do to complete the program? To complete the program students must take courses as specified as requirements for graduation and for the chosen degrees in the Meredith College and NCSU catalogs. Engineering Program Coordinator at MC will assist the student in designing a 5-year plan to satisfy all requirements of both schools.
How do I make sure I'm taking the right courses at Meredith and NCSU? The student is responsible for making sure that courses taken at either Meredith College or at NCSU that she expects to use to satisfy general education requirements at both schools are approved for this purpose by
Can I take general education courses at NCSU? Courses taken at NCSU to satisfy Meredith College general education requirments must be approved by the Dean of Natural & Mathematical Sciences and the Director of General Education at Meredith College.
What if I transfer to NCSU and decide I don't want to complete the program? Any student admitted to NCSU who does not successfully complete or who elects not to complete the requirements for the NCSU degree will be eligible for readmission to MC to complete the requirements for the Bachelor's degree previously delcared at MC.
What happens if Meredith or NCSU make curriculum changes? If any curriculum changes occur at either institution that could affect this program, such changes should be resolved and incorporated into the program thorugh consultation between the two institutions.
What happens if the agreement between Meredith and NCSU is terminated? Either institution may terminate this agreement by written notice to the other institution, given at least one year in advance of such termination date. It is, however, understood and agreed that any student already admitted to the Dual Degree Program at MC and specifically tracked for admission to or already admitted to the NCSU portion of the program under terms of the original agreement will be given the opportunity to complete such program, notwithstanding this termination agreement, so long as the student is and continues in good academic standing and is making progress toward completion of the program and degree.
